Fractals

Nature is rough, and until very recently this roughness was impossible to measure. The discovery of fractal geometry made it possible to mathematically explore the kinds of rough irregularities that exist in nature.

A fractal is a picture that tells the story of the process that created it. A rough or fragmented geometric shape that can be subdivided in parts, each of which is (at least approximately) a reduced/size copy of the whole.

Fractal geometry brings an extra dimension to geometric craft. Fractals itself are invisible to the naked eye, but in nature’s hidden dimension they are a true piece of art themselves. A fractal is a never ending pattern that repeats itself at different scales. This property is called “Self-Similarity.” Fractals are extremely complex, sometimes infinitely complex – meaning you can zoom in and find the same shapes forever. A fractal is made by repeating a simple process again and again.

The word Fractal is based on the Latin word ‘frãctus’ meaning “broken” or “fractured”

Fractals are found all over nature, spanning a huge range of scales. We find the same patterns again and again, from the tiny branching of our blood vessels and neurons to the branching of trees, lightning bolts, snowflakes, river networks and even the clustering of galaxies. Regardless of scale, these patterns are all formed by repeating a simple branching process.

Okto

FROM DIGITAL CODE TO PHYSICAL REALITY

All computer-drawn designs are created from geometry and pixel. What may seem like a organic round shape, is when zoomed in, constructed from a large sequence of geometry, also known as polygons. The more pixels and geometry can be used to make us see the image as real as possible.

The more we learn about the universe, the more it appears to be based on mathematical laws. Perhaps that is not a given, but a function of the nature of the universe we are living in. “If I were a character in a highly- advanced computer game, I would also discover eventually that the rules seemed completely rigid and mathematical, That just reflects the computer code in which it was written.

– Max Tegmark, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)

The Okto cabinet is a 1st generation computer designed cabinet still showing it’s underlying pixel- and geometric structure that is used to create it’s organic form and colour. The cabinet is inspired on the transformative characteristics of an octopus. The octopus is a master in fooling whatever is looking at him and reminds us that there is more information there than what meets the eye. Through camouflage the Okto cabinet reflects the world around him, connecting it’s digital structure with our physical world.

The Okto serie consist of 9 limited editon handcrafted cabinets, each cabinet one-of-a-kind and part of the bigger storyline. The firt cabinet shows Okto in it’s original colour and shape. The serie will show 8 cabinet transformations through art-history, from the roman empire to the renaissance, from baroque to the modern age.

The cabinets show a physical research in art-history, combining it’s digital structure with ancient craft, materials and styles. The first Okto cabinet is created from 1800 pieces of wooden geometry inlaid with a Moore&Giles leather pattern reconstructing the natural skin of an Octopus.

Skin Collection

BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY AND TRADITIONAL CRAFT

The Skin Collection consists of various limited edition desks, tables, cabinets and chairs. The thread that links them all together; Handcrafted geometry. The collection is created using paper moulding techniques in combination with a laser cutter. All furniture pieces are created from hundreds of pieces of geometry, glued, sanded and refined by hand.

The computer guided moulding and laser-cutting technique Jasser created for the production of the Skin collection opens new possibilities to ancient craft like woodwork, metal craft, glass-art, leather-craft, ceramic and many more.
